Muhlenberg College Multicultural Center Mission Statement

The mission of the Muhlenberg College Multicultural Center is to serve as a campus-wide resource that facilitates and promotes a learning community of multicultural understanding and exchange through collaboration, dialogue and action.

Under the collaborative direction of an Advisory Board comprised of students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni and friends, the Center is committed to promoting and sustaining an inclusive atmosphere that fosters and enriches multicultural understanding among all members of the Muhlenberg and Lehigh Valley community.

Through partnerships with other campus programming bodies, the Center supports and provides a focus for educational, cultural, and social programming that enriches and challenges Muhlenberg’s campus on issues of multiculturalism and difference. The Center aims to provide a supportive and safe space on campus for its multicultural students, faculty, and staff, and works to challenge acts of prejudice and ideologies of intolerance while seeking to advocate for all marginalized communities and cultures visible on Muhlenberg’s campus.

The Center strives to nurture and promote the academic success and leadership development of multicultural students at Muhlenberg. The Center also aids in strengthening Muhlenberg’s connection with the Lehigh Valley community by initiating and supporting related events and programs.
